development has occurred in mineral discoveries in the colony. 

This Catalogue does not pretend to be complete by any means, 
as there are doubtless mineral collections in the possession of private 
persons which have not been available. It is intended to supply those 
engaged in mining pursuits, prospectors, and others with a record of 
mineral discoveries for reference, as complete as may be, which will 
be of use in pointing out where to search for certain minerals. 

Under the headings Gold, Copper, Silver-lead, Iron Ores, and 
Manganese, lists of the mines where these metals have or are being 
worked are given, together with notes as to their modes of occurrence, 
which may be of use to prospectors.

this Department. In its compilation information has been derived 
from the following papers and reports : Geological and Mineralogical 
Papers, by A. R. C. Selwyn, Esq., F.R.S., &c., Director of Geo- 
logical Survey of Canada, and Professor G. H. F. Ulrich, F.G.S., &c., 
Dunedin University; Remarks on the Geology and Mineralogy of 
South Australia, by Thomas Burr, Esq., at one time Deputy Surveyor- 
General of this colony ; Lists of Minerals, by the late Dr. Meng, a 
German geologist, published in the South Australian Almanack for 
1841, kindly lent by T. Gill, Esq.; a Catalogue of South Australian 
Minerals, by T. C. Cloud, Esq., Assoc. Roy. Sch. of Mines, &c., 
published in the transactions of the Royal Society of South Australia 
for 1882-3, with the kind permission of the author and of the Council 
of the Royal Society ; and from collections made by G. W. Goyder, 
Esq., C.M.G., F.G.S., Surveyor-General; G. A. Goyder, Esq., jun., 
Government Assayer; J. B. Austin, Esq.; the Inspector of Mines; the 
School of Mines ; and myself. 

A Catalogue of Minerals and Localities, by Mr. G. A. Goyder, was 
published by this Department in 1883, since which time a great 
development has occurred in mineral discoveries in the colony. 

This Catalogue does not pretend to be complete by any means, 
as there are doubtless mineral collections in the possession of private 
persons which have not been available. It is intended to supply those 
engaged in mining pursuits, prospectors, and others with a record of 
mineral discoveries for reference, as complete as may be, which will 
be of use in pointing out where to search for certain minerals. 

Under the headings Gold, Copper, Silver-lead, Iron Ores, and 
Manganese, lists of the mines where these metals have or are being 
worked are given, together with notes as to their modes of occurrence, 
which may be of use to prospectors.

The Catalogue has been arranged alphabetically, for convenience 
in looking up the locality of any particular mineral, and it is hoped 
will form the nucleus on which a more extensive list may be built 
up in the future.

COPPER ORES. 

Lodes containing copper ores may be found to a greater or less extent over nearly 
all the area where the primary rocks outcrop. The Moonta lodes, which are the 
most important that are now being worked, are enclosed in felspar porphyry an 
eruptive rock intruded into granitic and metamorphic country. The Kapunda copper 
deposits are in argillaceous slates and kaolinized rocks of various colors, accompanied 
by dark blue pyritous slates. The Burra Hurra copper ores were worked in siliceous 
slates, crystalline limestone, and argillaceous slates and sandstone. The Blinman 
Mine is in an ore-bearing stratum of siliceous limestone, intersected by veins ami 



9 

lodes of ore ; igneous dykes of granite and greenstone are intruded into argillaceous 
slates, sandstones, and quartzites forming the country rock. Intrusive dykes of green- 
stone and other igneous rocks have been noticed as connected with other lodes. 
Boulder conglomerate, argillaceous and calcareous slates, dolomitic limestone, 
quartzite, micaceous slates and sandstones also constitute the country rocks enclosing 
copper lodes. In some instances gold and silver-lead ores are associated with 
the copper ores, and more rarely bismuth is present. Baryta, ferro-calcite, quartz, 
ironstone, gossan, and calcspar are some of the chief accompanying constituents of 
the lodes.

sand, in patches resembling pieces of dried leather. Although this substance is of a 
very similar composition to elaterite (mineral caoutchouc) there is a doubt as to its 
being a mineral. By some scientific authorities it is regarded as an exudation from 
a plant or a lichen, and by others as mineral oil evaporated to a solid form. The 
conditions it is found under are against the latter theory, as a mineral oil in a suffi- 
ciently fluid state to spread itself over a sandy surface would, in all probability, 
become absorbed by and mixed with the sand before evaporation to a solid state 
could take place.

GOLD- ALLUVIAL. 

By alluvial gold is meant gold which has been derived from the denudation and 
disintegration of rocks containing auriferous veins by the action of natural forces, 
the principal agent being water. It is found (1) scattered through the surface 
deposits covering the bed rock, and sometimes lying upon it ; and (2) in gullies 
which have been watercourses, which have become filled with alluvium washed into 
them from higher ground in their vicinity ; and (3) in deep leads which are alluvial 
deposits of Tertiary age that filled the beds of ancient Tertiary watercourses at a 
time when the drainage of the country was on a larger scale, and often in a different 
direction to that now existing. To a great degree these deposits have been denuded, 
and fragmentary sections alone remain as cappings on the hills ; but in some 
instances they conform to the contour of the present valleys. The Pliocene drifts 
of the Barossa Ranges and those covering a considerable area of country in different 
parts of the main range down as far south as Cape Jervis belong to this category. 
The Adelaide Plains are also underlaid by similar deposits, as well also as most of the 
flat country along the main creeks and valleys in many parts of the colony. 

There is a probability of alluvial gold, i.e., gold that has been denuded from its 
matrix, being found in the older Tertiary (or Miocene) rocks, which are understood to 
have been deposited in lakes and estuaries, and in the conglomerates and gravels of 
Mesozoic age. Gravel and sand drifts have been proved by boring beneath both the 
older Tertiary and Mesozoic rocks, where they doubtless fill the basins and channels 
of ancient lakes and rivers belonging to these periods. The presence or absence of 
gold in them depends on the proximity of older auriferous rocks from which they 
were derived by denudation. 

The auriferous conglomerate of Algebuckina, on the Neales river, may be of 
Mesozoic age.

GOLD IN VEINSTONE. 

In South Australia gold occurs in the several matrices undermentioned, viz. : 
(1) quartz reefs; (2) iron oxides (limonite, hematite, gossan, flucan, &c.) ; (3) 
Pyrites (ordinary iron pyrites and arsenical pyrites) ; (4) kaolin and silico fels- 
pathic decomposed veins and dykes; and (5) ferro-calcite (carbonate of lime and iron). 

The associated valuable ores and metals are galena or silver-lead, native bismuth 
and its carbonate, native copper, and ores of nickel, cobalt, and arsenic. 

In quartz reefs the gold is often visible to the naked eye, and in some cases in 
pieces of considerable size ; but in the ironstones and gossans it is often so 
fine as to be invisible. In pyrites this latter is almost always the condition, no 
gold being visible until the pyrites has been ground up. The kaolin and silico fels- 
pathic veinstones are generally small and often irregular, the gold occurring in 
them in flat, nuggetty pieces, and flat leaves and filaments, and often separated by long 
intervals of barren sections in the vein. They are apparently decomposed igneous 
intrusions associated with veinstone. 

The occurrence of nuggets in the alluvial drifts may often be due to the denudation 
of the soft argillaceous strata in which these veins have been formed, and nor alone 
to quartz reefs, which are generally regarde-l as the matrices of nuggetty gold. 

Auriferous quartz reefs occur in gneiss, granite, micaceous and hornblendic schists, 
and metamorphic sandstone and quartzites ; in argillaceous slates and sandstones ; 
in dolomitic limestones and slates : and in brief in all the known Primary rocks. 
Granite, diorite, porphyry, and other granitic dykes are often found traversing 
the gold bearing rocks in the neighborhood, or associated with the auriferous veins. 
The presence of auriferous veins is generally indicated by outcrops of quartz, 
ferruginous quartz, hematite, limonite, and other oxides of iron in reefs conforming 
to the strike and bedding of the country rocks, or cutting across them at varying 
angles. Their underlie varies from vertical to nearly horizontal, and their width or 
thickness from many feet to a few inches. Their bearing or * strike " is generally more 
or less meridional, although east and west in some districts. The character of the quartz 
varies greatly ; opaque, transparent, granular, dense, opalline, and ferruginous quartz, 
have all been observed to contain gold. The upper portions of auriferous veins are 
generally oxidised, the sulphide of iron being converted into oxides, but this is not 
invariably the case. The gold exists in shoots, i e., portions of the reef which are 
auriferous may be followed down continuously to considerable depths, while other 
portions along the course of the reef are barren, or else contain a much less propor- 
tion of gold. 

Small branch veins or " leaders" running across or into the main vein are often 
richer than the main vein, or the latter is more highlv auriferous near the junction. 
Iron and arsenical pyrites are more or less auriferous in all auriferous veins, but may 
vary in richness in a similar manner to quartz.

LIKELY AURIFEROUS DISTRICTS. 

Gold may be looked for in any of the country occupied by the Primary rocks, 
and, so far as has been ascertaiued, it exists over all such country as has been 
prospected by the gold miner, even to a small extent. The region to the westward 
of the Musgrave Ranges and that lying between those ranges and Oodnadatta, on the 
the Alberga river, has not yet been prospected, It is, however, an area possessing 
all the conditions characterising an auriferous country, and should be examined with 
a view to the discovery of gold deposits.

SILVER-LEAD AND ZINC. 

Veins containing argentiferous ores are, in South Australia, always associated with 
galena, or sulphide of lead, and cerussite, or carbonate of lead, with or without ores 
of copper. These veins may occur in any part of the area occupied by Primary 



28 

rocks, and are found chiefly in fissure lodes. There is an exceptional instance in the 
case of the Ediacara Mine, where the silver-lead deposits occur as segregated masses 
in a soft argillaceous bed, where also crystalline dolomitic limestone possesses veins 
of galena and carbonate of lead, and occasionally fahlerz ore. Most of the silver- 
lead lodes contain a percentage of zinc -blende (sulphide), which renders them refrac- 
tory in the processes of smelting and extraction of the silver. Chlorides and iodides 
of silver have been found in the Ediacara, Fifth Creek Central, Mount Malvern, 
Eagle, and other mines. Arsenides and phosphates of lead have also been observed. 
Gold also occurs in association with silver-lead in the ores of Eukaby, Wheal Ellen, 
and other mines. Baryta, calcspar, quartz, gossan, ironstone, &c., are some of the 
chief associated veinstones. 

Zinc blende (sulphide) associates with galena (sulphide of lead) in many of the 
silver-lead mines. It is regarded as a deleterious ingredient, as it creates a difficulty 
in the treatment of the silver ores, and up to the present time it has not been found 
in sufficiently large quantities to render mining for zinc as a distinct product worthy 
of specific attention.
